A CrimeStoppers reward of $2,000 was announced on Wednesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit who cruelly abused a dog that wandered into a CVS drugstore last week at 3900 Lawrenceville Highway in Lilburn, Ga. reported myfoxatlanta.com.

According to the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement, officers were called to the drugstore after the mixed breed dog entered the store. Customers and staff were shocked at the sight of the dog; his ears had been cut off and the top of his head was burned.

The dog is estimated to be about seven years old, possibly a boxer mix, and is gentle, and calm. Because of his medical needs, he will be available for rescue only.

Funds are being pledged to help a qualified rescue organization save this terribly tortured dog who is now being treated with medication and pain control.

If a rescue organization is able to help, please contact Officer Joey Brooks at (770)-339-3200.
